    You can be so proud of Beau and the young man that he became. There were so many young men that I coached, but Beau will always stick out for his determination to become better. I used to have to make him mad before he would start hitting the ball! We ran into each other quite often in Emporia, and he could always put a smile on my face. He will be missed, but never forgotten.

    Connie, just heard yesterday that was your son that was killed in the motorcycle accident in Emporia, from my sister. Had read about it in our Topeka paper and on the news but certainly did not make the connection. I am so very sorry for your loss, you have my deepest sympathy. Your friend and classmate, Kay Brown
